Classical and Modern Control with Worked Examples contains problems in automatic control, with emphasis on continuous time systems. The book contains exercises that increase in difficulty. The text is organized into three parts, with each of the three parts divided into two chapters. The first chapter of each part consists of a course abstract; the second chapter contains the exercises relevant to the course in question. The first and second parts are devoted to linear and non-linear servo-systems. The third part introduces representation in the form of equations of state of linear systems. The book will be useful to students, technicians, and qualified engineers who wish to acquaint themselves in a practical way with both the traditional and the modern principles of automatic control, and with their application to industrial processes of all kinds.
